Essentials of Switching Power Supplies

Abstract

Chapter 10 is about switching power supplies, whether buck, boost, or boost–buck, or indeed any other topology. The discussion is about switching and the problems that this can introduce, such as electromagnetic interference and power dissipation. One of the key topics is parasitic elements that have a significant effect on the efficiency and general performance of switching circuits.
